Minor in Environmental Studies

The Environmental Studies minor complements your major and provides a basic understanding of environmental issues.

Choosing a minor is optional. A minor can offer a way to explore a department or interdisciplinary theme with a smaller time commitment than a major; the major requires at least 80 credits, the minor requires 25 credits.

Since courses in minors can also count toward general education requirements, if you plan carefully you may be able to complete one or two minors within the 180 credits required for your degree.

To view the list of available minors at UW, visit the Undergraduate Academic Advising Minors page.
